Kids' Arts and Crafts FAIL Part 1

Last week we put out a call for people to show us their child's masterpieces.  We have been laughing ever since because the pictures you've sent us have been priceless. Here's the first installation. There will be many, many more. THANK YOU to all of you who submitted! Enjoy!

-------------------------

"My then 3 year old drew this AT SCHOOL when I was 8 months pregnant with her sister. All I can think is hubby needs to shut up about his obsession with boobs and/or my prego boobs really were totally awesome.

Her teachers told me that she drew a very interesting, detailed picture that day and just smiled at me. The giant colorful blob on my lower half is apparently the baby."






"Would you be disturbed if you found this in your kid's backpack? Would you feel really stupid 5 seconds later when you realized that it actually says "Picture Puzzle?"  So glad I was the only adult around right then...."


"My 3 year old drew this last week at school - was my Mother's day present. It's supposed to be a picture of me, and while rather unflattering, it is pretty damn accurate."




"My 6 year old son drew the following to prove that I am neglecting him too much by playing angry birds on the iPad. In my defense, I have four kids, all of them boys, two with ADHD. Give me my iPad and let me destroy some sh*t that I don't have to clean up. I cannot break the dishes any more since my husband replaced them with plastic trays that I swear he stole from his college cafeteria."




This is a beautifully rendered drawing of a leprechaun on a stick. Nothing else need be said.



  Stay tuned for another post later today!

  2. oh, I need to send you a pic of my son's self portrait for his Spanish class. And before you give me the self righteous snif about my 4 yr old in spanish (spamich) it's more for the social interaction he needs. Anyhoo, it's scary and sweet at the same time. I will try to zoom in and send it tmw.

  9. Huh. I wonder if my eight year old daughter's beautiful illustration of the sinking Titanic with someone jumping off yelling "cannonball!!" would fit the bill? Oh, my. Sometimes a teaching moment slips by, as the parents try not to blow coffee through their noses.

  14. My daughter drew the leprechaun when she was 6. You may be wondering what is next to him....what else would a leprechaun have but a piece of wheat? Lol

    ReplyDelete
  15. Bwahahaha!! I about snorted ice tea up my nose at the "picture puzzle"!! AWESOME!! And I am so glad she clarified the piece of wheat because I had so many thoughts running through my head and none of them had to do w/ 4 leaf clovers or wheat!
